Hollywood sweetheart Drew Barrymore has joined the ranks of the canceled.
Despite the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, which began in May, the actress and talk show host was planning to return to screening her show, “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
While she initially claimed her show complied with strike rules, she was met with huge backlash from social media users who suggested she was not standing in solidarity with the cause.
Now, Barrymore has issued a tearful, selfie apology.
“This is bigger than me, and there are other people’s jobs on the line,” Barrymore told the camera through tears. “I deeply apologize to writers. I deeply apologize to unions. I deeply apologize.”
“I wanted to own a decision so that it wasn’t a PR protected situation and I would just take full responsibility for my actions,” she said. “I know there’s just nothing I can do that will make this okay for those it is not okay with.”
Dave Rubin thinks it’s completely ridiculous.
“Do you see how insane this is? She did what she thought was right, right? She did what she thought was right for herself or the other people on her shows,” Rubin says.
“It’s all these other people who want to go back to work, but then, ‘I have to deeply apologize.’ It’s one thing to say, ‘I deeply apologize to the writers,’ right?” he continues, noting that her apology to the unions sounds like something a sellout would say.
“All right, lady, they’re gonna hate you no matter what you do,” he adds.
